The Huge Differences Between a 16th Birthday in 1984 & 2013

It’s hard to believe that the classic John Hughes movie ‘Sixteen Candles’ came out nearly thirty years ago.

With its anniversary rapidly approaching, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the sweet sixteen presents in 1984 compared to the gifts now, in 2013.

If it makes you feel any better I still own a pair of Zubaz pants.
